This report is intended to provide a quick glance at home sales in Blue Lake for the last 15 years, back to 2004, before what most consider the height of the market before the economic downturn starting in 2008. I am Blue Lake resident living on Beaver Lane and as a homeowner, I am invested in our neighborhood's real estate sales activity and hope to be your resource for real estate activity in Blue Lake.

Please get in touch with me if you have any questions, or are thinking of buying or selling in Blue Lake! If you're undecided, I am here to advise.

SELLER’S CLIMATE

If you are thinking about selling, now may be the time. Low inventory in the mid-Valley, plus inflated prices on current inventory means that homes priced to sell are in high demand. Currently, there are very few homes on the market in Blue Lake, offering Blue Lake sellers a significant advantage right now.
